When people hear about mountain biking in the Alps or Rocky Mountains, they get a pretty clear idea of what it is. Most everyone is familiar with the majestic scenery of mountain peaks (or at least, everyone has seen the pictures.)
And you can probably imagine the jungles and rainforest type terrain in Costa Rica. As well as the hot, arid landscape on the African Cape.
